Love independent publishing? Skilled in all areas of the marketing mix? A unique senior role has become available at Atlantic Books that requires an experienced, creative and adept marketer with an absolute passion for books. You will be responsible for all the marketing across the Atlantic, Corvus and Allen & Unwin lists as part of the Campaigns team.

The Marketing Director role involves managing the marketing budget to develop and implement marketing activity across all platforms to drive profitable sales and strengthen key genres and author brands. You must be adept at consumer and digital marketing, copywriting, social media management and working with third parties, as well as knowledgeable about book marketing trends and campaigns. You will be responsible for trade marketing, sales support and conferences, as well as social media platforms, digital marketing campaigns, acquisition pitches, branding and general marketing. Proven track record with authors and brands is key, as is the ability to work both independently and collaboratively, be creative and able to contribute pro-actively to the successful publishing of commercial fiction, literary fiction and non-fiction.

You’ll be the go-to person for marketing in this small and vibrant indie publisher, so you must be a self-starter and multi-tasker. Good communications skills are key, as is decent knowledge of digital marketing, retail channels and a wide-range of genres. This is the ideal role for an ambitious marketer, ideally with 5+ years’ relevant experience, looking for an exciting new challenge.
